Credit union professionals in North Carolina and South Carolina are invited to apply for the 2018 CUaware Protégé Mentor Program. The program connects professionals with a mentor at another credit union for a period of one year. Through a process that is collaboratively designed by the mentor and protégé, a plan and goals are developed, and a strategy for maintaining regular contact is created.
An important change to the program in the upcoming year includes dropping an age requirement to participate as a protégé. "In previous years, the program mirrored the age requirements of the CUaware Protégé Competition," shared Jeff Hardin, the coordinator of the program. "Going forward, we think the program can continue to grow in its scale and impact by recognizing that all professionals who want to expand their horizons can benefit from mentoring."
Applications will be accepted through the end of the year. The 2018 program year kicks off in Charlotte on February 1 with the CUaware Protégé Mentor Program Workshop. The Workshop takes place prior to the start of the Carolinas CU Connect event. Lee Fogle, an executive coach, will facilitate this interactive session.
If you are interested in mentoring or being mentored, you will find complete details and application forms on the CUaware Protégé Mentor Program page. Please contact Jeff Hardin (919-457-9063) with any questions.
